We’ll start off the Everything Else releases with Marvel Comics’ Icon imprint and Hit-Girl #3! The first two issues of the series, whose story takes place in between the two Kick-Ass volumes, were excellent. Can’t wait to see what kind of carnage is in store for us this week!
HIT-GIRL #3 (OF 5)
Written by Mark Millar
Art by John Romita
So many goons, so little time. Hit-Girl’s got both hands full when her sidekick Kick-Ass gets benched, leaving her to take the mafia on solo. But when her secret crime-fighting binge brings heat to the wrong guy, even Hit-Girl may be in over her head. Meanwhile, Red Mist gets sent where all rich kids go to do penance!
Next, while we’re talking about imprints of the Big Two, don’t miss American Vampire #31 from DC Comics/Vertigo! It’s a big week overall for Scott Snyder’s outstanding horror series, as you probably saw earlier that this week also sees the release of a new hardcover and trade paperback as well!
We’re also kind of curious to see how Aspen Entertainment’s Idolized #2 stacks up to the first issue, which we thought was a very well executed take on American Idol (except with superheroes) and even worthy of a post in our In Case You Missed It column!
Over at Dark Horse, there are two books worthy of mention: Angel & Faith #14 and Goon #42! Both are series we have supported proudly and continue to do so!
Finally, Rachel Rising #11 comes out this week! On top of this issue promising even more details about what is arguably the most interesting story in comics, it also features an absolutely STUNNING cover.
RACHEL RISING #11
Written and illustrated by Terry Moore
Rachel learns the truth about her past life and why she must enlist the help of a death angel to save the people of Manson from a 300 year old curse. Nominated for 2 Eisner Awards, Terry Moore’s horror series is a highly praised, addictive must-read.
